Oh fame, what a fickle beast you can be. Sometimes kind and sometimes crushing. We asked CNN readers to vote on the celebs they thought had the best and worst 2013. Thousands of you voted. Here are the results: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images
Best year: With a hit album and plenty of time in the spotlight (mostly because of controversy) you voted Miley Cyrus as having the best 2013. (We agree.) Ethan Miller/Getty Images
Best year: Jennifer Lawrence seems to be unable to do any wrong. Hit films, award nominations, adorable appearances and just an all-around cool chick. Christopher Polk/Getty Images/File
Best year: Justin Timberlake donned his suit and tie for "The 20/20 Experience," aka one of the biggest albums of the year. He followed that up with volume two of said album, a solo tour and a tour with rapper Jay Z. and (briefly) reunited with 'N Sync. Not too shabby. Kevin Winter/Getty Images/File
Best year: Sandra Bullock remained America's sweetheart with films like "The Heat" and "Gravity," which is generating tons of Oscar buzz for her. ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images
Best year: Readers exercised their right to write in a candidate and voted Beyonce as having a great 2013. She certainly slayed it at the end with a self-titled "visual" album that soared in sales despite having no marketing before its secret release in December. Grown woman indeed.

Worst year: Things just seemed to go from bad to worse for Justin Bieber with bad boy stories galore. He rounded out the year with a low peforming opening weekend for his latest concert documentary film, "Believe." Kevin Winter/Getty Images
Worst year: Amanda Bynes ended up hospitalized and much talked about after bizarre behavior and legal trouble. Neilson Barnard/Getty Images
Worst year: Troubled singer Chris Brown managed to get tossed from anger management rehab for being too angry. That, and more legal trouble, earned him votes from readers for worst 2013. Michael Loccisano/Getty Images
Worst year: Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Need we say more? X17Online
Worst year: 2013 was supposed to be the big comeback year for Lindsay Lohan, but with tepid interest in her latest projects, that didn't go quite as planned. Bryan Bedder/Getty Images for Clear Channel
